Sorry can't help but very interested in answers - am leaving in 19 days and had not even considered this potential issue. If no-one answers I can report back if not too late for you

sadly no,

UK voltage is 240, North America is 120.

So unless your straightening iron says 120 as well you will not be able to use it.

They are cheap enough to buy in vegas at walgreens though if that helps

enjoy your trip

Questions similar to this get asked on here every few months or so. If you try a forum search you should find a lot of the information you require. It would probably help if you spell straighteners correctly when searching.... :-)

LOL don't people get grumpy and pickey on here. When we went to USA for 1st time my Daughtet decided to try and do without her straighteners she lasted 2 days before we had to rush to Walgreens. She always takes her Ghds now and they work . Most expensive UK ones now are duel voltage .

Straighteners from the drugstore suck, those who do not straighten their hair could never understand lol
